In this lesson, students develop their skills of inference, comparison, analysis and evaluation, as well as their understanding of what a CV is and what a good one looks like.
Students begin by considering their own aspirations. They are then given the chance to move around and read snippets from 8 different CVs, which they use to make an Alan Sugar-style decision about which of the 8 candidates they would hire for the role. The lesson concludes with a writing task for students to demonstrate their writing and evaluation skills.
All you need is:
A printer for the resources
Blue tac to stick the CVs around the room
A powerpoint projector
Have fun! :)
